    Do you follow meta?

    do you follow meta or go with your personal fvt gods for me i prefer playing gods which are more fun to play or which i personally enjoy playing or the ones i like for different reasons could be that i like the god in mythology so i like playing them in the game (which was the main reason why i ever decided to play smite in the first place) but i often get messages from teammates telling me to not play that god or play that specific god just cuz it's in "meta" which i ofc ignores and play what i like anyways i don't care about "meta" "tier list" or what "pro players" are playing
    so what do you guys do?
    I know what I have become... I am the inside of this world... I taste the gore, and I smell the crying... AND I WANT MORE! I want to bathe in your flesh, I want to savor your fear. I wanna live inside a castle built of your agony, AND I WANT TO CRUMBLE IT WITH AN AXE TO YOUR CAROTID ARTERY!

    I don't play Conquest, so there is no meta (Also, where "Meta" picks can often be less impactful. For example, Chernobog is shit in Arena because his ult is useless there)

    However, if I DID play Conquest, then I'd probably just play my favourite gods, because I know that part of the "Meta" is just what the pros like to play themselves, as opposed to being purely down to power.

    Also, another part of "Meta" revolves around competitive play, which has voice coms and co-ordination, which can affect the power of some picks (Chernobog, Athena and Janus are all far better when teammates can communicate easily when using a global ult)

    Sure some picks are quite strong and fairly forgiving to play *Cough*Freya, Baron, Mercury*Cough* but there's something to be said for playing something you're comfortable with giving an advantage enough to at least put the pick on par with them. As evidenced by Loki having a not zero win rate despite being the literal worst god in the game.
    Preferred Gods:
    Aphrodite, Awilix, BAEllona, Da Ji, Discordia, Fenrir, Janus, Jing Bae, Nike, Nox, Skadi, Sol and The Morrigan.

    The meta is what's popular, and what's popular isn't what's necessarily true. Loki has a higher pick rate than Susano'o by roughly 9% even though the latter is by far the superior god. There is never a stronger pick you can make than your best god unless they're hopelessly countered by the enemy team.

    I play what I'm good at, and I build what works for me. I had a clash game where I built Sol using every item from the ring tree and completely destroyed people; but I'm certain that a build like that would absolutely get wrecked at higher levels of play. But I'm in scrub levels, so cheesing people definitely works.
    I'm a NA mid main on PC looking for a team for conquest or ranked joust. My player level is 108; I have 58 gods mastered with 17 at rank V or higher and 3 diamonds (Anubis, Scylla, and Sol). I play mostly nights and weekends CST time; message me if interested. No trash talkers please.

    I take meta with a grain of salt. And if its something that I flat out hate (healer metas/tank metas) I just don't play it. I tend to play my favorite characters more often, that said, I won't play stupid shit like Anubis support or Cupid jungle just because i'm not well experienced with Assassins in the jungle. So yes I would say I do follow the meta, but not to the point where my god pool only consists of the top preforming SPL gods.

    I'm cheating on Anubis, Camazotz is in the dumpster now.

    DO you do this with ranked as well? or just casual i've heard people get salty in ranked for not picking meta gods
    and yeah i don't play stupid crap like that either tho i've tried chang'e aphro and hel support, chang'e i didn't like as support as her dmg is not very good and with support items its even less same for heals
    I know what I have become... I am the inside of this world... I taste the gore, and I smell the crying... AND I WANT MORE! I want to bathe in your flesh, I want to savor your fear. I wanna live inside a castle built of your agony, AND I WANT TO CRUMBLE IT WITH AN AXE TO YOUR CAROTID ARTERY!
